In a similar vein, a group of friends in the hospitality industry have launched launched #TheVirtualHappyHour campaign to aleviate some of the losses of bars and restaurants.

Despite social distancing, people are still able to interact with each other online, so instead of enjoying a happy hour at the bar, the campaign encourages people to join in #TheVirtualHappyHour. Grabbing a cocktail, wine, beer or coffee and catching up with friends and family in a bid to reconnect communities with increased digital social interaction.

When the Happy Hour is finished, everyone in the group donates the price of their drink to the group’s favourite bar.

Punters can use Google Hangouts, Zoom, FaceTime, or Whatsapp video to have their own happy hour, and then contact their bar of choice to see how they want to receive payment. People are encouraged to donate the price of the round to your group’s favourite bar, and share the result in a social media post with the hashtag #thevirtualhappyhour.
